Auditioning the Last Twenty

I really like arranging the blocks with the stick. It's nice not to have to get down on my hands and knees all the time. Here I am working on the last section of the quilt - the last 20 blocks.

I have my arrangement, and took my photos and labeled the photos with row and block numbers so when I sew them together later they will be exactly the way I envisioned them. The backing fabric is due today, so that will go through the "washing machine shuffle" and then be ironed and pieced to make the backing. My son volunteered to help me tie the quilt on Saturday, so I can finish it up on Sunday. For that, of course, I shall feed him vast quantities of food. Maybe I'll make this.

And maybe even cookies.

It is just such a big jigsaw, I can see how addictive it must be, the challenge would never get tiresome :)
